Question Wondering what the heck's going on?

Hello. I am 33 and most of the time, I can set my clock as to when my period will come. Unfortunately, that has not been the case recently. The last time my period was "normal" was February '05. In March, I didn't have one at all. I figured maybe my body was regrouping, which it has done before, though not very often. Anyway, I expected to have a doozy in April. Instead, I got 2 days of very minimal spotting. Is this symptomatic of perimenopause?
I've had no kids but I do have very serious back problems. I've had 3 back surgeries and was recently told I now have another degenerated disc. Any ideas? I've wondered if this is my back/disc issue causing it or if, dang it, I'm just getting old and my hormones are crazy..... Thanks for reading.

Re: Wondering what the heck's going on?

I don't know if you are in peri. There are some on this board that are your age and have experienced your symptoms. You should check with your mother or older sisters and determine what age they were when they went through meno. Sometimes ( but not all the time) that can be an indication to you.

Also, if you are under stress or have been ill, your periods may become irregular. It is good to remember that peri can start 10 years before the actual menopause hits.
